Maggie Shiu to wed ahead of ex-beau
Forty-seven-year-old Maggie Shiu’s love life had been lacklustre since ending her relationship with Ekin Cheng in 1999. Things changed when she met Chinese martial arts star Vincent Sze while filming Johnnie To’s Tactical Unit: Comrades in Arms in 2008.
Following Ekin’s confirmation that he would be marrying current girlfriend Yoyo Mung next year, rumours sprang that Maggie is planning to tie the knot before her ex-beau. The wedding is rumoured to be held next March at Bethanie Chapel in Hong Kong.
Due to the 9-year age difference, Maggie and Vincent maintained a low profile on their May-December romance. Though their relationship came to light last year, the two had unanimously refuted the claims and referred to each other as ‘good friends’.
The couple finally acknowledged their relationship publicly in August this year, by showing up at an event while holding hands. The actress was pictured to be covering her stomach with her hands which sparked off speculations of a bun in the oven. The rumours were again quickly denied.
When asked about her marriage plans, the actress laughed, “Ask him!”
“I respect her a lot. I’ll do whatever she says,” Vincent said in reply.
Regarding his ex-girlfriend’s wedding plans, Ekin chose not to comment until the speculations are proven to be true.
